Call for Papers & Paper Guidelines

2020 IEEE Industry Applications Annual Meeting

Detroit, MI, USA

October 11 – 15, 2020

ias.ieee.org/2020annualmeeting

 

The 2020 IEEE Industry Applications Society Annual Meeting will address the technical interests related to industrial applications of electrical energy. Note that while the 2020 IAS Annual Meeting and the 2020 Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition will be collocated in Detroit, the technical programs at these conferences will be separate and will complement each other. Annual Meeting papers are solicited on subjects pertaining to the scope of the participating Technical Committees of the IEEE Industry Applications Society, as listed below.  For papers, draft manuscripts (NOT abstracts or digests alone) should be submitted by e-mail to the individuals identified below. Proposals for Tutorials (which may range from 4 hours to 8 hours) should include a detailed outline as well as a list of presenters and their credentials.

 

Attention: Due to the impact of Covid-19 on the activities, we have extended the due date of paper submission till 3/31/2020. We expect that Covid-19 should be under control by then. However, the 2020 IAS Annual Meeting team will provide facilities to enable remote presentation for authors who can not travel to the conference site under travel ban (Either from US or author’s home country). In either case, the author should still register for the conference. The cost of the registration will be determined later.

General Guidelines & Requirements: 


Authors must submit a draft of the proposed paper for evaluation by the sponsoring Technical Committee. Abstracts or digests alone will not be considered. One author must be designated as the corresponding author, and an e-mail address must be provided for that person. All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail. Authors are responsible for assuring that e-mails sent to the corresponding author will NOT be blocked by a spam filter.
 

At least one author must register to attend the conference, and pay the full conference registration fee prior to submitting each final manuscript. IEEE student members, IEEE Life Members, and unemployed attendees must select a full conference registration to qualify to submit papers. Authors are limited to submitting no more than four (4) manuscripts against each full registration. Papers in the main technical program will be archived in IEEE Xplore. Papers that are scheduled for presentation but not actually presented will not be archived in Xplore.


Final manuscripts for the Conference Record will be submitted electronically via the IAS ScholarOne Manuscripts site. All papers will be scanned for plagiarism in CrossCheck. The submitting author must execute an IEEE Copyright Transfer at the time of manuscript submission.

  • All papers sponsored for presentation by the Power System Engineering, Power System Protection, Energy Systems, Codes and Standards, and Metals Industry and Mining Industry Committees will be reviewed for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Application or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, and authors will receive feedback from this review following the 2020 IAS Annual Meeting. Note that to satisfy IEEE requirements, authors may be required to revise their papers during the course of the review. 

  • Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Industrial Automation and Control, Electrostatic Processes, and Industrial Lighting and Display Committees may request that revised versions of their paper(s) be reviewed for publication following presentation at the 2020 IAS Annual Meeting.

Not all IAS Technical Committees hold sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting every year. If a committee is not listed in this call for papers, you should contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee or Department Chair for more information. 

The 2020 Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition will take place in Detroit at the same time as the IAS Annual Meeting, and there may be additional opportunities to present papers at ECCE (paper submission deadlines may be different from AM).

 

 

Student Activities and Program:

Students are encouraged to participate in the Annual Meeting, and are welcome to submit papers for the Student Program being organized by the IAS Chapters and Membership Department. It is not necessary or expected that student presentations will be accompanied by formal manuscripts.
